.01% US rogue state’s national anthem poetic disclosure and choice: ‘No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave’: Do YOU stand for this?

hat tip: Robert Barsocchini

Professional football quarterback Colin Kaepernick is expressing in physical action what many Americans are catching-up to recognize:

We don’t stand for what the US is doing.

What Americans stand for in the US national anthem is a theme of defending freedom from attack by the same empire who attempted to disarm Americans in 1775, then arrest and execute our Founders, and keep Americans as servile work animals to the world’s most powerful empire. We stand for ideals of being a land of the free and home of the brave.

But the US national anthem’s third verse to damn enslaved humans from even hoping for freedom is psychopathically opposed to US values. Francis Scott Key’s verse from 1814 (historical context):

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The promised US response of terror and death to those who oppose their enslavement is poetic disclosure and poignant choice to Americans:

Do you stand for the illegal rogue state empire the US has become?

And by rogue state empire, I mean that as the best academic description of easily documented ongoing US lie-started and unlawful Wars of Aggression, looting trillions, and constant lying by “leadership” and corporate media.

But wait, it gets worse.

With documentation here, the US attempted subliminal programming upon Americans during the Star Spangled Banner at the end of every television program’s daily schedule, with these embedded messages:






(These messages are repeated until the finale at the end.)




See for yourself in this sharp 8-minute video from TRUTHstreammedia:

And consider this 1-minute satire from the Whitest Kids U’ Know:

For more on public education being designed to produce the above video result, this is my best effort to document.

America is engaged in the endgame of an Emperor’s New Clothes allegory, that when revealed will end illusion in a relative moment.

    > “…what many Americans are catching-up to recognize: We don’t stand for what the US is doing”.

    Factually incorrect. Change “many” to “a few”.

    The vast majority of Americans are just fine with the current Warfare & Welfare State.

    • Carl_Herman

      We’ll see. That’s the game we’re all in, whether all the players know it or not 🙂

    • diogenes

      You must have a very select acquaintance. Pretty much EVERYBODY I talk to — down to casual encounters in public — sees what is going on, at least in part, and NOBODY favors it and more and more are saying so.

      • Charlie Primero

        Go to a Walmart Pharmacy and ask the people in line how many want to give up their Medicaid/Medicare benefits, EBT cards, HUD rent subsidies, and lay off 90% of their kids in the military.

        Next, visit your local Country Club and ask the members how many would be willing to wipe out their stock portfolio and see the price of their house on the golf course drop 70% in exchange for honest government and less empire.

        Then, walk up and down your street and ask how many of the teachers and city/county/state workers would be willing to give up their jobs in order to clear the 19 TRILLION dollars in National Debt.

        • Carl_Herman

          Charlie, with all respect, those are all false choices you offer. They’re false because they omit the game-changing facts that we have economic solutions making all the corrupted/captured programs you offer as both obsolete and revealed as criminal looting enterprises.

          • Charlie Primero

            Your “Communism with Big Computers” of Jacque Fresco doesn’t work because it’s predicated on the falsehood that intellectual elites can FORCE workers to become Neitzscheian uber-menchen Supermen who value serving masters over self-preservation and family.


            You also seem to be unaware that Elite Predators designed and implemented Scientific Socialism 120 years ago precisely for the purpose of filling their vaults in London and New York with gold. It worked wonderfully for them.

            See: http://www.reformation.org/wall-st-bolshevik-rev.html

          • Carl_Herman

            Thank you for your response. I encourage interested readers for economic solutions to consider the documentation I provide, along with stating that Charlie offers a ridiculous straw man argument of those solutions.

            Energy-producing cities with our best technology should be in pilot projects, not slurred. “Elite Predators” are arrested if we have real solutions, not enriched with gold.


          • Charlie Primero

            You referred people to the Venus Project video in your link, not me.

            Scientific Socialism doesn’t work because it was designed by Elite Predators specifically for the purpose of enslaving workers, and it ignores the Economic Calculation Problem.


            The 200 million human beings slaughtered by communism in the 20th century should have prompted you to question the premise of it.

          • Carl_Herman

            Yes, I do refer people to the Venus Project to consider how current technology can restructure cities to energy-producing, beautiful, and cost-effective.

            I understand concerns of Elite Predators. That said, powerful technical solutions are amoral; that is, a hammer is a powerful construction tool that can be used in an immoral way.

            You cannot link technological proposals that would reduce work hours by half or more to the predators. Moreover, you cannot make that link when the essay in question specifically calls for the predators’ arrests.

          • Charlie Primero

            0.01% Bankers designed and implemented Communism (which demands the arrest of Elite Predators).

            You would benefit immensely from studying the reasons *why* they did this.

    A look into the origins of the pledge of allegiance – mandatory regurgitation for school children – reveals that it was actually created by a magazine in 1892 in order to sell flags to schools, and the pledge was created by Francis Bellamy to create a reason for schools to buy the flags.

    Can someone please tell Colin the American flag is the flag of a black/Jew nation. The American flag no longer represents a white nation. As for the song, plans are in the works to change it just to satisfy pouty little children like you Colin.

    • Robert Barsocchini

      Are you saying you would stand for a song that said white people should all be slaves and should be murdered if they try to escape slavery? If so, why?

      • Fee-fi-fo-fum

        What is your interests?? Why do you care about how or what I think?? Answer me, then I will answer you?? When has a Jew like yourself, ever apologized for anything?? When have the Jews ever apologize for slavery, drug dealing, or genocides or the murder of the son of God???? Who the fuck are you to tell me how to think, you rotten stinking Jew?? Go ahead and ban me. I know I hurt your tender little kyke feeling. You obnoxious little pussy.

          I’m not a psychologist, but you really seem to have some anger issues. If you just had a calm, rational philosophical discussion with me instead of avoiding it and giving in to the anger you harbor (for whatever reason), I think maybe some of your views would change.

            Who cares?? Go fuck a toddler Jew, it will bring you closer to your God, Satan.

          • Robert Barsocchini

            I’ll take that as an indication that you have chosen to decline my invitation.

    Many of our founding fathers could care less about freedom for the rabble (John Adam’s term). Washington, Hamilton, Adams and several like minded souls wanted out from under the observation of the crown and lords for greater power, wealth and influence, already wanting to push ownership to the Pacific and influence the Western Hemisphere. Many were of secret societies that had a strong presence in the East India Company, previously the Levant Company, and mercantilists of bankers and merchants before it. As John Kennedy stated, they run the country (and it’s sphere of influence) by/for covet means.

    As for Kaepernick–reportedly his jersey sales are now #1 in the NFL (despite being a backup QB).

    In regards to U.S. militarism, Jeremy Scahill had this to say:
    “What we are engaged in is a global hit squad program where we are the embodiment of what Richard Clark, who was the counter-terrorism czar under [Bill] Clinton, and then came over into the Bush era, he told Congress in a secret hearing shortly after 9/11, that the reason that Clinton didn’t do all the kind of things we are seeing right now [under Obama], is that they didn’t want to give the perception of running an Israeli-style assassination program.”

      Is the United States of America an Oligarchy? During the 2014 ISFLC, Jeremy Scahill speaks on the fact that in today’s world behemoth corporations are able to buy off politicians and pull the strings to impact legislature. Washington, D.C. is a town that operates by campaign contributions and legal bribery in the form of campaign finance. What can the American people do to get their political representatives to represent them as opposed to the mega corporations. When will the people’s voice be heard?


  • ClubToTheHead

    I enlisted in 1969 while others did sit-down strikes in

    I got out in 1973 and did my sit-down strikes in a bowling
    alley where all but me would stand for a salute to the flag during the national
    anthem before league play.

    I was so far past that salute and flag shit by then.

    And willing to fight those who would infringe my freedom to
    sit in protest of the lies and uses I had been put to in service of all the
    lying flag wavers from top to bottom.

    It is so very sad that these “heroes” are honored for
    sacrifices they made; when in reality they have been sacrificed by the war
    parties for the profits of imperialism. Martin Luther King Jr. made this point
    very clearly a year before his assassination.

    Patriotism is like a cuckoo’s egg:

    The cuckolded parents care for the cuckoo’s egg in their own
    nest—one laid by mother country and fertilized by father nationalism; the newly
    hatched cuckoo then pushes the cuckolded parent’s own offspring out of the nest
    and to their death, so that the exploited parents can better fatten the
    cuckoo’s chick.

  • ClubToTheHead

    One would expect to be molested by mobs and arrested by police if one
    stopped applauding the Fuehrer too soon.

    I prove that American sports stadiums are not American versions of “Nuremberg
    Rallies” by sitting during the national anthem to prove that this is not a
    fascist totalitarian state.

    Refute my proof and you prove that it is.
